Last night we had pizza on the grill. Yes, you heard that right. Grilled California Club Pizza, with chicken, bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and avocado on it. Yum. But before you start to think we’ve lost our minds, hear me out.
If you’ve never had pizza with lettuce and avocado on it, then you may be missing out. Seriously, this pizza is the bomb dot com. My mouth is watering just thinking about all of the yummy ingredients.
To make your own, start out by firing up the grill. Grab a pre-made pizza crust and spread some mayonnaise on top of it. That’s right. I said mayonnaise.
Next, sprinkle on some diced chicken and bacon pieces (both pre-cooked.)
Then, add some mozzarella cheese and a few tomato slices.
Place the pizza on the grill and let it cook until the crust is crispy and the cheese is ooey-gooey.
While the pizza is still on the grill, mix a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise with some chopped lettuce. Try to resist dumping the whole bottle of mayo in the bowl. Add the lettuce/mayo combo, along with diced avocado, to the top of the pizza when it is finished.
Now, just to keep things real, I
don’t really like loathe tomatoes, so I always pass them off to my hubby. However, our whole family absolutely loves this pizza. And it is totally tweak-able if you don’t like/can’t have some of the ingredients. (I.e. gluten, pork, etc.) Let us know if you try this one out!
